Chappattis under the grill

IMG_2471As I have electric, I can’t make chapattis over a flame. I developed this recipe and the combination of wholemeal and white means that the rotis have substance but the dough is sufficiently pliable.


100g wholemeal flour

50 white flour

125 ml warm milk with 1 tbs olive oil

1/4 tsp salt


Sift flours and salt together.

Mix in 100 ml of the milk and olive oil mixture. Add in enough to make a smooth elastic dough.

Coat hands in flour and knead mix, coating your hands in flour first.

Split into golf size balls and cover with an oiled cover for 30 minutes to an hour.

Roll out and grill each side under a very hot grill under parts blacken.

Smear with unsalted butter and keep warm until they are all grilled.
